mcberko (7443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2014
Rating #6000. 11.2 oz. bottle, pours a dark mahogany with a small white beige head. Aroma brings out lots of sweet wine (port), followed by caramel and candied sugar - quite complex and decadent. Flavour is decadent and complex, with treacle toffee, just enough port barrels, and a touch of candied sugar. Wow, this is rich and elegant. One of Evil Twin’s best. This is marvellous.

Bottle at Torst, 03/30/2013. Pours dark cola brown, slight haze on the surface, light lacing. Aroma has dark roasted malt, charred wood, light hop character, finish is toffee, dark fruity port, subtle tartness and even a little cheese, interesting. Taste is toffee, carame fudge, port notes, subtle funky edge, nice roast offset. Almost an aged, musty quality as well. Big bodied, smooth. Wow, very nice.

olio (6685) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Pours deep dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma of ripe fruits, sweet caramel malts, some toffee and chocolate notes with wood, faint vanilla and some vinous hints. Reminds me a bit of Dumle Liquorice, that’s a first and definitely not a bad thing.
Flavor is also a bit sweet with ripe fruits and caramel, some malts, lightly salty licorice and dark berries, wood, faint tar and syrup also. Very oily texture, soft carbonation, full bodied. Lingering smooth caramelly aftertaste. Very well balanced and tasty, alcohol is also well hidden. Simply excellent.

lusikka (6603) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of rich dark chocolate, port, oak and raisins. Rich flavour of toasted malts, dark chocolate, salty licorice, distinct heavy port notes, English toffee and grassy bitterness. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a long warming, sweet, rich finish. Pairs extremely well with kärtner rahmlaib cheese. A dessert at it’s finest.
